For starters, think about muscle growth like putting together a large hormonal puzzle. The picture gets clearer once we understand that the puzzle is made up of pieces like DHT, Testosterone, GH, IGF and MGF. Some of these hormones are expelled by the liver as a response to damaged muscle tissue. For example, growth hormone helps release insulin-like growth factor. One of the variants of insulin-like growth factor is MGF, better known as mechano growth factor. In the past, you had to depend on your body to produce IGF or MGF naturally, but not anymore. Now that scientists have been able to isolate and reproduce these peptide chains, bodybuilders and athletes can recover faster and increase hypertrophy like never before.
PEG MGF Explained
When you are working out, you are breaking muscles down and the real growth happens when the muscle heals and cells are able to grow and increase in size. This is where PEG MGF can be utilized as an incredible recovery tool. PEG MGF can be ran as a standalone peptide post workout, but it’s especially useful on recovery days. By injecting 200mcg bilaterally (subcutaneously or intramuscularly) PEG MGF will bind to receptors and actually help recover damaged muscle tissue better than IGF-1. PEG MGF has also shown to signal satellite cells close to the damaged muscle tissue to grow just as if they were a part of the damaged tissue cells. This means that damaged cells are going to grow larger and faster, but also it is going to grow cells near the damaged tissue. In simple terms, this means you’re creating new muscle tissue while recovering the already-existing muscles. This is extremely helpful, considering that as you get older the ability to proliferate satellite cell regeneration decreases drastically. This leads to age related muscle loss, as you aren’t able to create new muscle cells. This is where MGF comes in! Mechano growth factor directly increases the availability of muscle cell production; therefore, recovery times from damaged muscle tissue are going to decrease and muscle size is, in turn, increased.
